Baked Taquitos

Makes: 6

Ingredients:
6-10 inch organic tortilla shells that are not made with an enriched flour
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, separated
1/2 lb. lean ground beef (I buy 93% lean/7% fat)
1 teaspoon taco seasoning mix
1/4 cup water

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prick tortilla shells all over with a fork to prevent them from bubbling when baking. Brush 1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil on each side of the tortilla shells. In a small nonstick frying pan, crumble and brown ground beef. When ground beef is no longer pink, drain grease. Stir in taco seasoning and water. Simmer for 5 minutes. If there is any liquid left in the pan, drain it so the tortilla shells do not get soggy. Put 1/6 of the seasoned ground beef on one end of each tortilla shell. Wrap tortilla shells tightly and put them seam side down on a baking dish lined with aluminum foil. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Be cautious when eating. Filling will be hot. Have with a glass of water.
